Not quite the same chord progression, but a similar melody. I believe that's why it's referred to as that. Some have also dubbed it the Uncle John's Band or UJB-like jam because it does sound similar to that song too. I remember the first one I heard in the 10-19-73 China Cat, and thinking that the ending sounded a lot like Uncle John's.

I always thought this jam was at its best in those China>Riders, though there are some really moving, melodic instances in Dark Star. One of my favorites is in the 4-14-72 Dark Star, no longer linkable here...
